Jim Hunt: Hello, this is Jim Hunt for Bramasol’s Insights to Action podcast series. Today, we’re really lucky to have Pete Graham back with us. Pete is Director of Finance Solutions and Mobility at SAP. We’re going to talk today about, Anything-as-a-Service business models and especially the key roles played by S4/HANA, BRIM, and RAR. Pete. It’s great to have you back.
Pete Graham: Thanks, Jim. I’m glad to be here.
Jim Hunt: Why don’t we just jump right in if you can provide a brief overview of everything or anything as a service and how it’s evolving?
Pete Graham: Sure. We’ve talked before about the Digital Solutions Economy, which is really the next evolution of the subscription economy. And this subscription economy can be explained a little more fully with the following use cases, right? The subscriptions, whether they’re recurring or regular, in terms of payments. They could be in return for access or a resource, perhaps a good or service or privilege to some upgrade. They can also be Anything-as-a-Service, which a lot of times is only pay for what you use. We’ve also seen entitlements, dynamic pricing models, outcome-based models, usage, and consumption-based models, especially in the utility industry. But that’s now more prevalent in all kinds of industries, especially IT, tech and, media and revenue sharing models.
